This was our 2nd trip to Jamaica and first to the Riu from June 26 to July 3, 2014. From check-in to checkout everything was excellent!! The room was clean and well kept every day. The food was superior and the choices covered absolutely everything. There were activities virtually every minute of the day if you chose. if not the... More

My husband and I have just returned from our holiday in this lovely hotel 20 June for two weeks and wished it could have been more. We had complimentary drink on arrival which did not take long to register and our bags were brought up to our rooms really quickly. The staff were excellent, rooms cleaned and towels changed every...

This review is long overdue. My mom and I visited Jamaica for a quick getaway from April 10 - 13, 2014. I can honestly say that this resort is pretty good. However it was very embarrassing seeing oppressed Jamaicans employees. I'm an African American and I refused to make another race superior to my own. I'll elaborate below. Check-In/Check-out -...

I visited the Riu Montego Bay in January 2014 with a girlfriend. We had both stayed at Riu's before, but this was our first time at the Riu Montego Bay and Jamaica in general. Our experience exceeded our expectations. While we were only doing a short four night vacation, we opted out of excursions and spent our time basking in... More

Have been to almost all properties of riu in Jamaica, I like this one particularly as because of its location and "just vacation" mood of the place. The place, staff and evening entertainment was great as usual. will highly recommend if Mobay is on the cards for any one with or without kids.

We stayed at the Riu on June 28th for the week. We had a really fun vacation! The resort is close to the airport so it's only a $20 cab ride one way. You do have planes flying over every hour, but it's no big deal. The staff is very friendly. The rooms were cleaned daily, the beds were great,... More

I have to admit that I abuse Trip Advisor, I read reviews and never write them but I felt that, after reading people constantly moan and complain about the stupidest little things, I had to write a review on the Riu Montego Bay. We stayed here from 8th – 23rd June 2014. We flew with Thomson and after a 9... More

After reading all of the negative reports on Hotel Riu Montego Bay, we decided to give it a chance. After all, you only live once. Here is a honest review of the hotel, food, staff and our stay. June 9-16th was one of the best vacations we have ever been on and it was mostly because of our stay at... More

We stayed here June 17-24. It was a good time but: Tips are "really" expected off site and you get the evil eye if you don't. Some seemed to expect it even you just asked a question. No one was pushy but they could make you feel uncomfortable. Never settle for the first price offered in the "bargain". The next... More

Montego Bay Riu was a great place for 25 of our family members to meet and celebrate the marriage of my sister and brother-in-law. The resort was a great size with a big pool and beach. Several options for restaurants. Close to the airport which was nice after 20 something hours of travel to get there.
